  02/07/2011: Cisse, Cana and Kone edge closer
email print  
The rumour mill has gone into overdrive with speculation that Lazio could see three or four new players in the coming days. Corriere dello Sport have rounded up the situation this morning and LazioLand believe the case is as follows;

Federeico Marchetti is expected in Rome on Tuesday to undergo a medical and be ready for the trip to Auronzo di Cadore.

A deal for Lorik Cana is said to be in place and the move currently depends on Fernando Muslera going in the opposite direction. Galatasaray have confirmed negotiations are taking place but the Uruguayan's agent Daniel Fonseca claims that nothing has been signed and states only that a solution will be found soon.

Panagiotis Kone is seemingly closer. Lotito claimed earlier in the week that he knew nothing of the deal but the Brescia hierarchy claim that he told them that he would finalise the move at the end of June and has since told them that they must wait until the beginning of July. The agreed fee is said to be 3.5 million euro.

The deal for Cisse, which LazioLand believe has been virtually completed for quite some time is on hold until Sergio Floccari finds a new club. The favourites in the race to sign him is still Parma but he may be seen as a makeweight in a deal for Mattia Cassani. Cassani's agent is expecting to hear from Lotito in the coming days.
